Maya Angelou - 1928-2014

Many lived and died and they are forgotten but you (Maya Angelou) live on mortal minds. With memorable smiles history dictates your life story that bide humanity to be a better human being.

Maya Angelou's most inspirational quotes:
  • "Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option."

  • "We allow our ignorance to prevail upon us and make us think we can survive alone, alone in patches, alone in groups, alone in races, even alone in genders."

  • "If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain."

  • "Nothing will work unless you do."

  • "History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, however, if faced with courage, need not be lived again."

  • "You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them."

  • "One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest."

  • "I am a Woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal Woman, that's me."

  • "I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way (s)he handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights."

  • "Nothing can dim the light which shines from within."

  • "Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope."

  • "Ask for what you want and be prepared to get it."

  • "A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song."

  • "The honorary duty of a human being is to love."

  • "Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud."
  • "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
